Phenylephrine is readily eliminated by sulphate conjugation in the intestinal wall, and oxidative deamination by monoamine oxidative glucuronidation in the liver. Monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors can enhance the limited potential of phenylephrine for cardiac and pressor effects, by reducing metabolism. As a largely specific alpha adrenergic drug, with very weak beta agonism, there is little direct cardiac effect. However, in higher doses, there can be increases in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure and a reflex bradycardia. As an adrenergic agonist there is the potential to interact with other sympathomimetic drugs. In overdose phenylephrine can cause hypertension, headaches seizures tachycardia, and vomiting. There has been no evidence from carcinogenicity studies in rodents of any enhanced cancer risk over prolonged exposure.
It has to be noted that three of the SAEs were skin cancer forms. Since the study was performed in Australia, a country with the highest incidence rate of skin cancer (http://globocan.iarc.fr/), this cumulative incidence is not improbable. Furthermore the study was performed on clinically obese subjects with a BMI ≥ 35 kg/m2 (BMI ≥ 35 kg/m2; Median BMI: 40 kg/m2, range: 35 to 67 kg/m2). It is known that the incidence of several types of cancers is associated with increased BMI [26].

In this study, AOD9604 was given in a dose of 0.25 mg that is comparable to the dose used in a previous report [8] on GH in promoting recovery to normal walking and in joint repair in the rabbit collagenase model of osteoarthritis. AOD9604 is a fragment of GH; therefore the dose of AOD9604 used was the molar equivalent of the active GH dose that the previous study [8] used. Human GH was given as 3 mg in 0.6 ml intra-articular injection volume. On a molar basis, 3 mg of GH equates to 0.25 mg of AOD9604. In addition, published data [10] suggest that the volume of synovial fluid in an arthritic rabbit is approximately 0.7 ml. Combined with the injection volume, this gives a total volume of 1.3 ml and therefore an initial concentration of AOD9604 of 0.19 mg/ml. In a previous study [11] of GH in the beagle after intra-articular injection, researchers injected 1.5 mg of GH in aqueous solution in 0.15 ml volume. The aqueous formulation gave an initial concentration of approximately 200–300 ug/mL in the synovial fluid. On a molar equivalent basis this equates to 0.11 mg/mL of AOD9604, which is close to the value used in this study.


Conclusions: Subcutaneous administration of CJC 1295 resulted in sustained, dose-dependent increases in GH and IGF-I levels in healthy adults and was safe and relatively well tolerated, particularly at doses of 30 or 60 ug/ kg. There was evidence of a cumulative effect after multiple doses. These data support the potential utility of CJC 1295 as a therapeutic agent.
Hey Elvia, do you think that using DAC for short periods of time at your proposed dose is still effective for fat loss? Say for four weeks at 4mg a week? I know peptides need to be used for awhile before effect can be seen. I was thinking about doing 4mg a week for 4 weeks with Injectable l-carnitine for my last 4 weeks before summer haha. In your experience is it worth it to spend the money on the DAC for such a short period?

Actually, it's under S0 because it is not approved for human use by any regulating authority anywhere. The S2 category is the one relating to mimicking effects of other compounds or GH. But you were right, the OP is fundamentally incorrect. The real reasons that Dank chose this compound to administer to Essendon players is still a mystery but we can be certain it wasn't paid for or administered for the fun of it.


Serum IGF-1 levels remained relatively constant over the dosing period with no apparent differences between treatment groups. Fasting plasma glucose and serum insulin levels remained unchanged throughout the treatment period. Furthermore, no changes in any of the OGTT parameters were observed from day 1 to day 7 of treatment. There were no study related clinically significant findings in the safety related laboratory tests, vital signs, or ECG measurements.
Three of the submissions did not support the proposal highlighting the impact the change in scheduling would have on product currently on the market, industry, pharmacists and consumers. Two submissions noted that there has not been a history of concern with this combination of substances. One submission, referring to the NEJM article, believed that a lack of information about the study means that it cannot be relied upon as there is not a meaningful assessment of the results.
A large difference between steroid hormones and peptide hormones is that some steroid hormones exhibit oral activity, in that they can be active after they are taken by mouth. However, many peptide hormones are digested in the same way as proteins. They are broken down into amino acids in the digestive system, which means they no longer have the bioactivity of their parent compound. Consequently, they may require administration through injections.
PCR amplification was carried out on cDNA equivalent to 100 ng of starting mRNA using the following murine oligonucleotide primers (expected and observed PCR product size): β3-AR forward, 5′-TCTAGTTCCCAGCGGAGTTTTCATCG-3′; (234 bp) reverse, 5′-CGCGCACCTTCATAGCCATCAAACC-3′; β-actin forward, 5′-ATCCTGCGTCTGGACCTGGCTG-3′; (559 bp) reverse, 5′-CCTGCTTGCTGATCCACATCTGCTG-3′.
Like everything in life, you need to be careful. Too much of a good thing can be bad. Water and oxygen are essential for survival, however in excessive amounts be prepared to have ‘000’ on standby. The same principal is true for any drug or peptide. When used at the recommended dose, clinical trials have proven peptides to be effective with minimal side effects, if any. In addition, the body even has its own natural feedback mechanisms in place to downregulate high levels.
Eligible study subjects were admitted after overnight fasting for an outpatient visit at the MGH CRC. Upon admission, two intravenous catheters were placed for phlebotomy and 10 mL/m2 of body‐surface area (BSA)/minute normal saline (0.9 mEq/mL) was infused over 2 hours. Blood pressure, heart rate, and oxygen saturation were measured every 20 minutes during the saline infusion. BSA was calculated according to the DuBois algorithm (BSA (in m2)=0.20247×height (m)0.725×weight (kg)0.425). Venous blood was sampled beginning immediately prior to the start of the infusion and at 40, 80, 120, and 180 minutes after the start of the infusion.
It is well known that hGH is associated with increased IGF-1 levels. IGF-1 may have a variety of undesirable effects, including an increase in cancer risk [22, 23]. In the studies discussed herein, IGF-1 levels were monitored in all long-term studies but did not reveal clinically significant differences between dose groups or placebo. Therefore the 5 SAEs that occurred in the 12 week treatment study (three in the AOD9604 20 mg group (basal cell carcinoma, moderate lipoma and squamous cell carcinoma), one in the 10 mg group (malignant melanoma) and one in the 5 mg group (breast cancer)) could not be attributed to increased IGF-1 levels. The Principal Investigator considered none of the reported SAEs to be “possibly”, “probably” or “definitely related” to the study medication. The rationale behind this judgment was that none of the cancer forms occurred in the highest dosage group (30mg AOD9604/day), therefore a dose effect can be excluded. Further examination of the SAE cases indicated that these subjects had neglected their personal medical care for a longer period of time, so that the higher incidence of cancer may well have occurred due to the natural incidence rate of cancer events in the population.
Django Nathan, a medical doctor with a degree in molecular biology and genetics, takes peptides because of his busy lifestyle: "Quite a few doctors I know are using them because they have so many beneficial effects and so few side effects. We're not elite athletes – we live rushed lives that can involve 70 hour weeks so staying fit and getting good sleep is essential – and peptides aid that."

Even, if you are not a fitness enthusiast, you can benefit from using the CJC 1295 Ipamorelin blend. Australia is one of the countries using them to deal with other conditions, which can affect our everyday life. There is an abundance of anti-aging clinics across the Australia that follows strict legal guidelines to sell peptides. Based in Sydney Peptides Clinics, has a good selection of peptides, to help with many conditions that occur with age, from hair loss, depression, fat loss, low libido and tanning.

As an athlete, you can also increase your dosage cycle for a period of 12 to 16 weeks at a time, to maximize your gains. Do so gradually if you opt to go this route. Make sure you increase your daily dosage (1 to 2 doses per day, etc.) gradually. Start off with lower dosage levels as well, and see how it interacts with your body. You don’t want to experience withdrawal, nor do you want to experience negative side effects when using Ipamorelin for longer dosage cycles. So, make sure you monitor your progress, see how you feel as you go, and make notes if/when you do experience negative side effects, so you can balance down to the proper dosage levels.
This is a great option for those who are looking to promote a steady and improved release of GH to get the benefits of increases in growth hormone and subsequently Insulin Like Growth Factor -1 (IGF-1) with almost no side effects. This therapy is effectively used for anti-aging purposes as well as those with inflammatory conditions, disease or those who have low IGF-1 levels.
CJC 1295 has shown some amazing results as a growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) analog. Not only has CJC 1295 shown potential to increase growth hormone and IGF-I secretion and effects, but it has been able to do so in very large amounts. CJC 1295 Stimulates Growth Hormone Secretion, and will keep a steady increase of HGH and IGF-1 with no increase in prolactin, leading to fat loss, and increased protein synthesis thereby promoting growth.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disease that results from articular cartilage loss induced by complex interactions of genetic, metabolic, biochemical, and biomechanical factors with secondary components of inflammation [1]. OA is the most common arthritis and a major medical problem in people aged 65 years and older [2]. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), physical therapy, exercises, corticosteroids, and hyaluronic acid injections have all been used for the conservative treatment of OA. The role of NSAIDs in OA management is controversial because of its adverse side effects, as well as side effects on the cartilage [3].
Echocardiograms were performed before and after saline infusion at both the baseline and post‐gastric bypass surgery visits. Each subject had four echocardiograms in total during the entire study. Interpretations were made by investigators blinded to clinical status (before or after saline infusion, before or after surgery). The following standard measures were made on two‐dimensional (2D) images in each echocardiogram: interventricular septal and posterior wall thickness (IVS and PWT), left ventricular internal diameter at end‐diastole and end‐systole (LVID, LVIS) and left atrial anteroposterior diameter (LA Dia) in the parasternal view, left ventricular (LV) volumes using a modified Simpson's rule (apical 4 chamber and 2 chamber views), mitral inflow E and A velocities and E deceleration time, and mitral annular early diastolic (e′) velocity at the lateral annulus. We did not calculate left atrial volumes due to limited echocardiographic windows in severely obese patients. Estimation of left atrial filling pressure was obtained every 20 minutes during the second hour of the infusion by determining the ratio of the early diastolic mitral inflow velocity to the early diastolic mitral annular velocity.15
